    I got 2 dwarf hamsters from a pet store about a week ago, the are suppose to be both girls. One...

    of them just had babies today, She was obviously pregnant before i had gotten her. But I was wondering if I should remove the other girl?

    The babies *should* be okay, especially if they are Roborovskii dwarfs, at least from what I know. I've never dealt with pregnant hamsters before, so I'm not entirely sure. Hamster will sometimes eat their babies, especially if they are young or first-time mothers, so if all of the babies don't make it don't be too shocked.

    Good luck!

    I think with dwarf hamsters its ok to leave them together, not like with normal hamsters. But tbh I wouldnt trust the other girl, I'd remove her just in case.
    Hamsters can be quit weird sometimes and you dont want to get them stressed. My hamster ate ALL her babies...sad I can't imagine what would have happened if her hubby was in the cage with her.

    I would seperate them just in case the other girl tries to eat them.
